The IODP (Integrated Ocean Drilling Program) Expedition 329 had been progressed to study the subseafloor life of the SPG (South Pacific Gyre). SPG is the largest ultra-oligotrophic environment on the Earth and the amount of organic compounds by primary production supplied to abyssal sediment is low. Among the drilled 7 sites (U1365~1371), 6 sites (U1365~1370) tended to penetrate oxygen more than 50mbsf. However, U1371 showed a significant difference that TOC concentration isrelatively higher than other sites in overall depth and oxygen penetration is detected only within 1mbsf. Therefore, we wanted to know the microbial community structure forming the deep biosphere at each site by selecting several depths exhibiting distinct features at each 3 sites (U1365, U1370, U1371). The 16S rRNA amplicon analysis was performed to compare the microbial community pattern difference between the three core sites. As a result, Chloroflexi (Dehalococcoidia) was highly dominant at majority of depths in the three sites. The distinctive feature of U1371 is figured out that the bacteria such as SAR406, SAR202 and Desulfobacterales which are able to use nitrate and sulfate instead of oxygen can be detected correspondingly to characteristics of each depths. Furthermore, the result of correlation analysis between bacterial composition and environmental factors reveals Dehalococcoidia indicate negative correlation with oxygen and positive
